1950 classified ad mentions Louise Brooks
Here something I recently came across, a 1950 newspaper ad promoting classified ads which also happens to mentions Louise Brooks! That year marked a real low, not only in the actresses personal life, but also in her reputation. Brooks, who had not appeared in a film in 12 years, was leading a pretty quiet life in New York City. That an advertisement mentioned her is rather unusual. This piece is a rarity.
